    Hi fellow NMA students! I hope to find you all well.

    I wanted to share a couple paintings I’ve made the past couple weeks to help keep my mind busy and bring some ease. I’ve used concepts and techniques I’ve learned from Bill Perkin’s Colour Bootcamp course and Juliette Aristides’ A Realist Approach to Drawing and Painting, both which were fantastic.

    I find I tend to struggle most with getting my values right, saturation levels and getting overwhelmed by trying to express all the subtle colour temp variations I see as planes change, even within the small ones. Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Look after yourself and others.

    Cheers Joshua

    How annoying. I’m glad it was brought to attention so that other’s threads can be adjusted too.
    Thanks again for NMA  providing the opportunity for critiques for us.

    Wow, lovely work. In the Beach landscape I think you really nailed that headland and sky value and colour, that sit in great harmony. There is such convincing depth and many variations of cool and warm colours, you really read the scene well. In the Photo there is a slightly lighter strip of beach in the background, which you could add to push that beach background away a little more, or maybe darken the forground beach just a smidge to pull it forward. But such great work, keep it up, you are soooo past kindergarten!!!

    Thank you Rachel! 🙂

    Trying to create a sense of harmony across the image was an important factor for me. I wanted the viewer to feel as though they are right in the scene, taking in the whole landscape. I wanted to recreate the feelings I had in that location many years ago. I didn’t think I quite capture it, but it was fun to make nonetheless.

    I see what you mean about pushing the backstrip further. That indeed would help. The alternative as you said would be to pull the foreground beach in, which may work better for the kind of effect I’d want to create. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Haha, that was an A+ project 😉 and will do

    It definitely has a sense that this is a moment in time, You have expressed that well. I really enjoy the feeling of this painting.
